Neon Feathers

A Weaver Looking For Lunch

Weaver, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

When we stopped for lunch in the Ngorongoro Crater, the birds came looking for a free lunch. This male Weaver is perched on the edge of the safari roof of our vehicle. It seemed unconcerned I was taking its picture.  (I think it is a Bertram’s Weaver but I am not positive.)

Stairway to Hogwarts

Store shelves with author clay portraits, Livaria Lello, Porto, Portugal

The upper shelves in Livraria Lello (Lello Bookstore) are adorned with miniature portrait busts of authors. Porto’s Livraria Lello is famous because J. K. Rowling used it as the inspiration for the library in the Harry Potter books. When she lived in Porto, she spent time in the store imagining the world of Hogwarts. Crowds line up to visit the bookstore, which has resulted in the store having to sell timed entry tickets and charging a fee. Too many people were crowding in just for photo opportunities and not buying anything. Even with the fee, it was packed the day I was there.  Getting to the upper level was difficult because people were posing and blocking the stairs. The entry fee is refundable if you buy a book or item not related to Harry Potter.
